WHAT A DIFFERENCE AN “A” MAKES

WHAT A DIFFERENCE AN “A” MAKES

On Valentine’s Day many years ago, my teenaged daughter received several envelopes from admirers. One she was especially eager to open. The outer cover was beautiful with hearts, flowers, ribbons, and lace. She smiled as she read the printed message. Then her expression changed. The card was signed with the suitor’s name and a handwritten note that read: “You are so sweat.” He had made an easy spelling mistake. For my daughter, this error raised unintended emotions and thoughts and took away from the the true feelings this young man meant to convey. So lovers beware, put in some practice spelling time playing Rhymes & ‘Nyms and for all written messages, use spell check to ensure you make the right impression. Happy Valentine’s Day.
